Well one more new thing today. I went to a theater nearby, the “Ranga Shankara” and saw my first play “Dancing on glass”. It is a black comedy on the lives of BPO employees and was produced by the group AEIF. The whole play had just two people in it, but they were good. It was a good experience. It was seemingly a top medium play, as rated by a regular at the theater I met. For me, it was like walking onto the sets of “Pyaasa’”, with all the over hanging lights, etc.

The play in itself was a mixed bag, with all the fun elements of an independent life being led by the BPO generation, albeit one in which they are continually under stress, living on alternate timelines; of room mates who never get to see each other; having to not only deal with their own day-to-day peskiness but others’ too; of a girl’s practical approach to life making herself question if she is a heartless bitch. The two actors were really great. The ending was a bit too sudden, but I am sure all theater lovers would, if nothing, at least have a good laugh there.

I never went to the west, so I watched the movie. But then again for an authentic experience, i watched it in Dutch, with English subtitles. Well if you say, “Hey there isn’t anything western in Holland!” I wouldn’t know what to say!

It turns out I just didn’t know how to change the language of the movie! And I came to know about it only after watching the entire movie! A new lesson learnt today, so today ain’t wasted!
